The Beautiful Christmas Walk In South Carolina You’ll Want To Experience Again And Again

Bring the kids and the camera because you’ve never seen the Riverbanks Zoo and Garden quite like this before. Nearly a million twinkling lights illuminate the paths of this Christmas walking path through the beautiful gardens of this zoo each year in a display that seems to just get bigger and better with each passing holiday season.
